The Frick Art Reference Library

The Frick Art Reference Library's book and photograph collections relate mainly to paintings, drawings, sculpture, and prints from the fourth to the mid-twentieth centuries by European and American artists. Known internationally for its rich holdings of auction and exhibition catalogs, the Library is a leading site for collecting and provenance research. Archival materials and special collections augment the research collections with documents pertaining to the history of collecting art and of Henry Clay Frick's collecting in particular.

The Frick Art Reference Library is a founding member of the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC). NYARC is a collaborative program of the Frick Art Reference Library and the libraries of the Brooklyn Museum and The Museum of Modern Art.
